To teach kids how a hurricane develops and how to prepare.
Hurricanes are a part of nature and with proper warning and safety precautions they don’t have to be life threatening.
Begin the discussion by asking, “Does anyone think they know what a hurricane is?”
Let kids share some answers then share with a thinking partner. Listen in and share out what you hear the kids say. Pull up wonder #334 What is a Hurricane and read through with the students. Clear up any vocabulary questions along the way and have kids retell what they learned. Remind kids that the more they know, the more prepared they will feel when the hurricane comes.
Head to the weather whiz website link and help kids talk through what they can do to help their parents prepare.
